A Norwegian has become the latest person to win a multi-million dollar online slots jackpot.
The player won €5.2 million while playing a progressive slots game called Empire Fortune.
This is the the biggest internet slots win that we’ve seen in a while. And you can see more on how it happened below.
Jackpot Won through a Mobile Device
The player in question has been playing at the same online casino for 9 years. And they happened to be playing on their mobile device at the time of the win. While this isn’t the biggest mobile slots jackpot we’ve ever seen, it’s close to the record.
Player will Remain Anonymous
As is typical for big online slots winners, this player will remain anonymous.
No details have been given on the Norwegian’s name, gender, or location.
Of course, few players who become slots multi-millionaires like revealing any information.
One of the few exceptions we’ve seen is a player named Marcus Goodwin, who won $11.63 million through Mega Moolah.
Unusual Jackpot Game
Most of the big online jackpots we’ve seen have come through Mega Moolah or Mega Fortune. This is the first time that we’ve seen Empire Fortune pay out this much.
Fredrik Elmqvist, CEO of Yggdrasil, which made Empire Fortune, discussed this game’s record-setting win.
“We’re very excited to see one of our players hit our biggest ever jackpot,” said Elmqvist. “Jackpot titles are always popular. But what makes Yggdrasil’s progressive jackpot slots so successful is the engaging base game that keeps customers happy.
“Our market-leading slots, including Empire Fortune, are enjoyed by an ever-growing number of players and operators. And as we expand our customer base, it won’t be long before another lucky player hits the big one.”
Plenty More Time for another Big Online Slots Jackpot
The year is over halfway over. But there’s still plenty more time for another big online slots winner.
This is especially true as we head towards fall and winter. These are two big seasons for internet slots, due to the colder weather keeping players indoors.
